Meredith (opening voiceover): We all go through life like bulls in a china shop. A chip here, a crack there. Doing damage to ourselves, to other people. The problem is trying to figure out how to control the damage we've done, or that's been done to us. Sometimes the damage catches us by surprise. Sometimes we think we can fix the damage. And sometimes the damage is something we can't even see.
Izzie: What did you say to him?
Meredith: Nothing, I fled the scene.
Izzie: You didn’t tell him about George or Derek?
Izzie: Hmm. You like him.
Meredith: I could like him.
Izzie: Is the sex any good?
Meredith: I don’t know.
Izzie: Four dates and two sleepovers at his place and no sex?
Meredith: Not even a kiss good night.
Izzie: Oh I am proud. I am like a proud mama.
Meredith: Shut up.
Finn: You're driving me crazy with the hovering.
Meredith: This could be a mistake. This. Us. You, you, you’re a really nice guy and well, you're, you don't want to get involved with me. If you knew me.
Finn: And damaged. See, I told you.
Meredith: If you knew me. If you knew my family. If I told you the guys that I've slept with lately. The scary and damaged may actually be more than you can handle.
Finn: My mother's dead. She got cancer when I was ten and she suffered for a really long time and then she died. And my father never recovered. Its kind of like he died with her, except that his body's above ground and permanently placed in front of a TV with a bottle of scotch in his lap. And the last woman I slept with was my wife, but she died too. It was a car crash so it was quick. She didn't suffer, which I appreciated. Don't worry, I'm thinking that my luck is beginning to change, because I met you. And you like dogs, and you enjoy pony births, and have the ability to save lives. I never said I wasn't scary and damaged too.
Cristina: What are you doing here?
Alex: Captain of the Vagina Squad.
Cristina: (To Melanie) This nice man is going to take care of you now and he really likes to talk, so chat away. (Cristina leaves).
Melanie: (To Cristina) It was nice meeting you.
Alex: Not cool, Yang.
Melanie: What you mean captain? And what squad you're on?
Meredith: I never should have told you about George.
Derek: No, its fine, I'm glad I know about him, and the vet. You really get around.
Meredith: What did you just say to me?
Derek: It's unforgivable.
Meredith: I don't remember ever asking you to forgive me.
Derek: So was the knitting a phase? Who's next? Alex? 'Cause I hear he likes to sleep around. You two have that in common.
Meredith: You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done. So all the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cared, because I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore.
Derek: This thing with us is finished. It's over.
Derek: Yeah, it's done.
Meredith: It is done.
Meredith (closing voiceover): We're all damaged, it seems. Some of us, more than others. We carry the damage with us from childhood, then as grown-ups, we give as good as we get. Ultimately, we all do damage. And then, we set about the business of fixing whatever we can.
